First of all I want to wish everyone Happy Labor Day. Fall is upcoming per the calendar, it is already September. I am the POTW designer over at The House that Stamps Built for this week and I cased a card done by one of our former design team Rock Stars Esther Ashberry. Here is her card -
I liked it so much that I asked her if I could "CASE" it - "Copy and share everything" and she said "sure". So here is my take on her card.
Would you like to see how I did this??? Well my main reason for trying this was I got a set of ZIG clean markers, they are watercolor pens and they are a lot of fun to work with. I got a gift coupon for my birthday and this is what I spent it on.
I used 3312-E Maple leaf 3314-D Birch Leaf 3313-E Oak Leaf 3311-C Acorn, stamped the images with black archival ink as I was going to water color them. I chose a variety of Zig markers in fall colors and I colored my leaves and acorns.
I die cut a tree out of vellum with bare branches and then sprayed it with Glimmer Mist spray in coffee color.
I die cut the word "blessings" in brown.
I did some random black splatters which I love to do, just adds a bit of character. I then glued the tree and the word blessings on my main panel. I layered it on dark brown and then my base card was kraft.
Hope you enjoyed this POTW this week, and I enjoyed being able to visit with our dear friend Esther and do my take on her card.
